new DRZ $3999

Geez, I just paid $4500 for my new 400e just a few weeks ago and came across this dealer selling for $3999 brand new!www.lacyclesports. com, they're in CA and will probably ship. Sounds like a deal.

I just checked the site and saw the prices range from $4295 - $4995.

I Paid $3999 -$4981 out the door, Drz400E. 01 models are discounted. This was NorCal, just gotta shop around. Go to



I bought mine from Andrews Cycle in Ohio, for $4500 out the door including everything, even taxes. I live in FL and they ship for free.

That LACycleSports is a joke. I called on a DRZS that they had listed for $3999. Using that "special Internet only price" the out the door figure was $5600. When I finished laughing at him trying to figure out how he got $1600 worth of fees, his only explanation was that he only included normal fees and it was a great deal and I should buy right away. Oh yeah, and he wanted another $150 to deliver it 250 miles to me.

I too paid $3999.00. $4900.00 out the door. I got mine in santa cruz , ca. 2001 400e by the way.

I paid $4700 out the door for a new 01 DRZ400E

compition here in dallas must be high got mine for $3600 out the door! No Sh*t i can post a picture of bike and reciept! Bike sat on sales floor so long the gas was yellow from sitting in the tank, it also wouldn't run unless choke was on!

Some of the dealers are advertising $4399 prices here in Phoenix but by the time fees are added it comes to around $5400 for a 2002. Juat a sham.

Other dealers who do not advertise will actually sell them for a little less.

Yeah sure Yeager Gas in a new bike on the showroom floor?I don't think so.I bet they even let you drive it right off the showroom floor,hoping you won't hit any innocent bystandards, while reaching for a beer on you factory mounted six pac cooler.

:) Yeager after 5 beers!!

The $3995 price is a come on as one guy noted. LA Cycle sports ARE a joke. I know from dealing with them on both Honda and Triumph street bikes.

A couple other SF Bay area shops had low ball come on prices too. I paid $4860 out the door at Motorcycles Unlimited in Corte Madera and I bought the extended warranty as well so that pushed it up $300 more. Still a good deal. Neal still has at least five 01' DRZE's sitting around. The dealer in Dallas lost money on the deal cause that price is less than his cost.


my `02 S will be $5149 out the door.bought it in New York(Kinderhook).i lived in Phoenix for almost 2 years and was shocked at the inflated prices some dealers are charging out there-for everything from plugs to pistons!i found,in Phoenix anyway,that you have to come into a dealer with cash(yeah,right mr.Rockerfeller!),say what your willing to pay and don't move an inch.eventually they'll give in and you'll get the deal of the century. but,then again,the rich always get better deals!

Someone asked me to post the phone # for Andrews Cycle. I don't have it here , but there are in Salem, OH. I found my purchase to be hassle free. $4500 out the door, free shipping. I bought in Nov 01', maybe they were just blowing out some 01's. I know the guy had 3 more at the time of my purchase.

Dec. 3, 2002, drove away with an '02 DRZ400E for $4800 from Hardin Motorsports, Elizabethtown, KY. Love the bike. Went back last Friday and bought a DRZ250 for my daughter, $3800. Priced these around for a month. These folks won't let the sale go for a couple hundred bucks.

      I'd like to turn my UK 2004 DRZ400S back to stock airbox (snorkel) and jets, needle shim position etc
      When I bought it the PO had fitted a Sigma6 kit and done the 3x3 mod but is doesn't have a tapered needle like the JD and other kits. Took me ages to get it running right, however it still runs rich and I'm fed up of arsing around with it. 
      So I've bought a standard airbox without 3x3 hole, stock exhaust.
      Q1 The Suzuki manual says this Mukuni BSR36 (29FA) carb should have a 142.5 Main Jet but the Clymer manual say its a 135.  In UK everything's from sea level to 1000m. I'm in Sheffield so nothing gets above 500m even in the Peaks (Hills). Any UK owners or anyone else know what the correct jet should be?
      Q2 Says the original needle is a '5DH36-2nd'. The needle has 5 notches on it. Currently set at 2 clip from bottom. The Suzuki reference says needle is 5DH36-2nd, Does the 2nd bit mean 2nd from top or bottom?
      Q3 - Does anyone have a detailed photo of the shim order just in case it was assembled wrong. (mine is attached)
      I know most people on here are going to be horrified I'm taking back to stock but any help on above would be really appreciated.

      I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season.  I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft.  I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home.  I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding.  I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able.  Are there any disadvantages with this?
      I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.

      Good Morning,
        Last night I measured my valve clearances for the very first time (I know...) on my DRZ400S.  It's a 2002 and I've owned is since 2011.  I bought it with t's got about 15,000 miles on it and most of it's miles these days are on dirt.
      Intake specs are 0.10-0.20 mm.  Exhaust specs are 0.20-0.30
      My intake valve clearances are in spec, forgot to write them down.  My exhaust valve clearances are between 0.1778 and 0.2032 which is slightly out of spec.  They are no more than 25 microns out of spec.  My question is, do I really need to shim these?  Will this kind of out-of-spec cause performance, mechanical, or other losses?  As far as I can tell, I'd have to buy a whole shim kit which is like $80.  Thanks!
